Mr. Jack Marshall (Humber-St. George's-Si. Barbe):

Mr. Speaker, my question can be a supplementary question to the Minister of Veterans Affairs because it was pre-empted. Can the minister advise if the direction by cabinet to trim $500 million from the proposals of the Minister of National Health and Welfare with respect to increases for the disadvantaged included a cut-back on increases in war veterans allowances and disability pensions?

This is not the case, Mr. Speaker. In any event, of course, I cannot comment on what takes place in cabinet.

SAINT JOHN VETERANS HOSPITAL-STATUS OF TAKEOVER AGREEMENT

Mr. Thomas M. Bell (Saint-John-Lancas-ter):

By coincidence, Mr. Speaker, my supplementary question is also directed to the Minister of Veterans Affairs. It is in connection with the takeover of the military hospital in Saint John and the conflicting statements made by the minister and his counterpart in New Brunswick. Can the minister say whether he feels that the contract that has been held up can be brought into effect, or has it been completely terminated and will it have to be renegotiated?

Hon. Jean-Eudes Dube (Minister of Veterans Affairs):

There is no military hospital in Saint John. This is a veterans hospital, and the agreement between the government of Canada and the province of New Brunswick has merely been postponed.

With respect to the correction that the minister has made I am glad to hear him make it. It is the first time I have ever seen him show concern for the veterans.

Mr. G. W. Baldwin (Peace River):

Might I have the permission of the House and of Your Honour to ask the President of the Privy Council as Government House Leader, having in mind the very lean appearance of the order paper, what the minister proposes to put before the House next week?

Yes, Mr. Speaker. We only intend to put seven measures before the House in the coming week. For tomorrow's business we will have first the Bills of Exchange Act to be followed by the Supreme Court Act. Monday will be an opposition day. On Tuesday we will deal with the second reading of the Standards Council Bill, to be followed by the report stage of the Oil and Gas Conservation and Production Bill. On Wednesday we hope to carry to conclusion second reading stage of the National Farm

Products Marketing Council bill. On Thursday we would propose to call the Law Reform Commission bill, but I would be glad to take into consideration the suggestion of the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre that if the extensive committee discussion of this legislation requires a further full committee day we might make a special order for that day.

Mr. Forresiall:

A supplementary question, Mr. Speaker. May I ask the government house leader when the House does get around to dealing with the amendments to the Canada Elections Act whether the government has any intention of dealing with sections 61 and 62 which were deleted from the terms of reference to the committee?
